xarchiver 0.5.4.22 - update

Hello:

This is a continuation of this thread on xarchiver 0.5.4.14 and the use of passwords with compatible archive formats. ie: those that support passwords.

It is mature and still works a wonder, which is why I have insisted on using it.

It has gotten better yet.

The actual maintainer (Ingo Brückl) kindly accepted to add code so that it would be easier/more straightforward to add a password to a file generated via the right.click -> 'Compress ...' action in PCManFM.

I expect that this also works in OpenBox and Thunar.

Now, creating a file from PCManFM with xarchiver 0.5.4.22 ('Compress ...') will open the 'Add files' window which now has the 'Options' previously available only when creating a 'New' file from xarchiver itself.   

ie: 'Actions' -> 'Include subdirectories', 'Delete files after adding' | 'Compression' (levels 1 to 9) and 'Encryption'.

Source code here, a *.deb package arriving eventually at your neighbourhood Devuan/Debian repositories.

Best,

A.

Thank you ...

You're welcome but it is really all IB's merit.

He is the one who has been keeping this very nice/useful (ca. 2005) application running and up to date for the last 9/10 years.

Best,
